Sports Teams

Roscoe Township tries very hard to provide excellent groomed parks and recreation trails.  Sometimes this is very hard due to weather.  The beginning of this year as not been favorable at all for parks and trails.  It has been very damp and cold.  With the cold the new seeding that has been put down on RJC soccer fields is not taking hold.  To allow this to happen it will be necessary to possible keep the parks closed longer this spring.  Both Robert J Cross and Kelley Myer parks are still locked for drive in traffic.  You may park at the gates to walk in and use the play ground equipment.  Fields will be opened according to weather permitting.
